She's the spiciest ingredient in the legendary rap group Salt-N-Pepa, and the outspoken star of VH1's smash-hit reality show. She's Sandy "Pepa" Denton -- and she's never at a loss for words. Now, in her first tell-all book, Pepa talks about sex, music, life, love, fame, and so much more....

"Most of you know me as Pep, or Pepa, the fun-loving half of Salt-N-Pepa. I am the party girl, the one who is down for whatever. But behind the laughs and the smiles is a whole lot of pain."

Funny, fearless, and full of life, Sandy "Pepa" Denton is a pop culture icon whose remarkable story is every bit as captivating and provocative as her Grammy Award-winning music. This is the real Pepa -- upfront, uncensored, unstoppable -- and these are the memoirs of a true pioneer, fighter, survivor, and inspiration to women everywhere.

For the first time, Pepa talks about:

* Her troubled childhood

* Surviving abuse

* Her first encounters with Cheryl "Salt" James

* Salt-N-Pepa's instant success

* Her failed marriages and her escape from domestic abuse

* Her "breakup" with Salt and their eventual "reunion"

* Her triumphant comeback on the VH1 reality shows The Surreal Life , Fame Games , and The Salt-N-Pepa Show

Filled with surprising insights, outrageous anecdotes, and celebrity cameos -- including Queen Latifah, Martin Lawrence, Janice Dickinson, Omarosa, Missy Elliott, L.L. Cool J, supermodel Caprice, Ron Jeremy, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez, "Spinderella," and many others -- Let's Talk About Pep offers a fascinating glimpse behind the fame, family, failures, and successes of celebrity...and into the faithful heart of a woman who will always value the good friends she found along the way. In the words of Sandy "Pepa" Denton, "there's no walking away from that."

A quick and juicy read. Entertaining but not quite sure how factual it is. Noticed a few inconsistencies. Nevertheless, it was a fun diversion from life and it felt like you were watching one of your best girlfriends dish about life on the Wendy Williams couch. Would recommend to all b-girls and hip-hop fans!

I am a huge fan of Salt N Pepa so picking this up was a no brainer. Pepa instantly envelopes you in her story and she doesn't let go. If you are looking for a celebrity tell all, this book is not what you are looking for. However if you are interested in a story about survival, self- discovery and how to "push it" through adversity, this is your book. I finished this quickly and was glad I got to know a little more about the spicy half of my favorite girl band.
